Being responsible means you are reliable for your own actions. For example, if you knock down a water bottle, it is your responsibility to clean it up. When you are responsible, it makes you more trustworthy and therefore gaining the friendship of more people. The older you are, the more you are technically responsible for your actions. When you are younger, your actions matter less than when you are older. Responsibility is a VERY important trait to be able to have, and it will make your life much easier!
